It looks good and comfortable!
Great job.

Thanks!  I was a little disappointed that some of the stitching/alignment isn't quite even, but really you can't really see it unless you get up very uncomfortably close.

I've been making t's and tanks from the Ottobre 303 pattern for a while.  After I made a full bust adjustment and added a little length, they fit great!  Here is my newest salmon colored tank.  To add a little flair and to keep it from being too plain, I added some white stretch lace around the neck.  Something about it kind of reminds me of Anthropologie, but I'm not sure why.

And a close up of the lace.  Shh...some uneven stitching.  I won't tell if you won't.

I love those!  If I thought I could make it work on a bigger pair of shoes (without showing my drawing flaws) I would make a pair for me!  Well, OK, for the kids, too.

What an adorable idea!  I have a lot of the same issues with tops. 
Is the bird fabric a knit as well?

It is.  Smiley

I tend to sew my own t-shirts because with my bust, a lot of shirts just end up too short.  Even if they fit in the store, after a couple of washes they get shorter, even if I'm careful with their care.

I have this lime green tank top that I've only worn a few times.  It's way too short.  I also had some scrap of this adorable bird fabric.  I used it to lengthen the shirt and added a small bird applique.

Here's the before:

And the after:

A closer look at the applique:
76  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Cheap flip-flop refashion with mini tute on: June 06, 2013 03:07:21 PM
Around this time of year, tons of stores are selling rubber and plastic flip-flops for $1-5, but the plastic part that goes over your feet hurts me.  Like, a lot.  I have scars from the last time I attempted to wear ones with the plastic.  A couple of years ago, I started grabbing up a couple of pairs a year and refashioning them.  Sometimes I cover the plastic, sometimes I remove it and replace it with something else.  Here is my first pair this year.  For this, I wrapped the plastic so it doesn't make contact with my foot.

For this project, I used strips of scrap fabric, and this stuff I found.  I've tried to use hot glue in the past, but it didn't work very well.  This stuff seems to hold pretty well after the 24 hour cure time.

First, take a little bit of your scrap fabric.  Cut it down so it is no taller than the toe part, but long enough that you can wrap it a few times, but not too many.  If you wrap the fabric around the toe too many times, it will be too wide to fit between your toes comfortable.  Use a bit of the glue/adhesive (you should probably use gloves for this) to attach the end of the fabric, wrap tightly around, and add more glue underneath the end.  I also took a Q-tip and rubbed some of the glue across where the fabric ended to tack down the edge.

Next, you are going to attach the end of a long strip of fabric to the end of where the plastic foot portion starts.  Tack down with glue the same way you did the toe.

Start wrapping around the plastic foot portion, making sure you overlap a little each time you go around.  Keep the wrapping tight.  When you get to the end, tack it down with the glue underneath the ending edge, and a little more over the top to get the edge where the wrapping ends.  If you'd like, add a bow, flower, or other embellishments.

That is adorable!  Great job!  I did a Jake costume last year for my youngest.

I second using a cake flour.  I do a lot of baking at home (breads, rolls, cookies, cakes, etc.).  Using cake flour really makes a difference.
